Biography

Roscoe Beck is a multi-Grammy Award winning record producer and bassist. He has recorded and played with Robben Ford, Eric Johnson, Leonard Cohen, The Dixie Chicks. He also has his own signature electric bass: the Fender Roscoe Beck Bass, used by many other players.

After earning a reputation from Austin to L.A. as a solid bassist with such artists as Robben Ford, Eric Johnson and Joe Ely, Beck made his debut as a producer in 1986 on Jennifer Warnes’ highly acclaimed collection of Leonard Cohen songs, Famous Blue Raincoat. Since then, he has produced numerous projects, including albums by Cohen and Ford. “I reached the point where I wanted to be more than someone’s bass player,” he says, “and producing seemed the logical direction.” In his current playing and co-producing role with Robben Ford & the Blue Line, Beck’s consideration for the overall sound of the group has led him to move up the fingerboard, where he rounds out the trio’s sound with simultaneously tapped chords and bass lines.[1]
